If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you could switch on password protection for a given folder - either the main Internet site folder or any other one below it. When this function is turned on, a pop-up shall appear each and every time a person tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected only the domain.com folder. In case the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody shall be able access the secured content. The option may be useful in numerous cases - if only certain individuals must be able to see certain files, if you work on a website and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, etc.

Password Protected Directories in Web Hosting

If you use any of our web hosting packages, you can make password-protected areas easily even if you have no experience with this kind of matters. We have built in an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts, so you shall be able to secure any folder within just a few seconds. You will only have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder that should be protected (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type the desired username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question later on. Every secured folder will have a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see instantly what content is secured and what's not. When necessary, you can make a number of sets of login credentials for the exact same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to set up password protection for any content which you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We've integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel where you will be able to switch on the function with several mouse clicks and with no difficulties, even if you are not really tech-savvy. You'll simply have to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder which has to be secured (the primary folder or a subfolder) and the login name and password. The protection shall take effect immediately, so if you make an effort to open the password-protected URL within your browser, you will have to input the newly created login details before you proceed. Additionally, you will be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of individuals, so you'll not have to share the same login credentials with everybody. Any password-protected folder shall have a compact padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize this type of folders in no time.
